In July 1989, the dunes were designated as Fiji’s first National Park under the management of the National Trust of Fiji Islands.
This distinct feature covers an area of 650 hectares and offers a rich combination of geomorphological, ecological, cultural and aesthetical attributes.
Momi Battery Historical Park
Nestled among the sugar cane fields of Momi lies a now silent gun battery.
In 1941, with World War II raging throughout the Pacific, the Fiji Islands, like most other Pacific Island nations, was vulnerable to Japanese attack, and if captured, the perfect staging area for incursions into New Zealand and Australia.
Kula Eco Park
Kula Eco Park is an ecological preserve in Fiji. It is located on Fiji’s largest island, Viti Levu, near Sigatoka. The area was originally established as a bird park in the 1980s, but was bought by Kula Eco Park Management in January 1997.
With an extensive system of walkways through the park, and a wide range of attractions, the park is now a popular tourist attraction.
Waisali Rainforest Reserve
Waisali Rainforest Reserve is a declared protected area and is a biodiversity conservation project owned by the Waisali community in partnership with the National Trust of Fiji and assisted by NZAID.
The very high diversity and high incidence of endemic species makes Waisali one of the few managed parks in Fiji with a unique and important floral and faunal composition.
The reserve is approximately 130 hectares and is one of the last unexploited rainforest in Vanua Levu.
